How many of you believe Hendricks caused GSP's retirement?

I think was a factor, but not the main reason.

He probably did want to leave, I just think after a very tough fight like that it likely made him want a break even more.

It was a huge factor, if not the biggest.

Georges didn't want to fight Hendricks in the first place. Then after he was thrashed and gifted a decision, he wants no part of a rematch.

Hell, he's saying that Jake Shields will be WW champ...

Give me a fucking break.

Considering the rumours were out there well before the fight even happened that he was going to retire or take an extended leave, no Hendricks had little if anything to do it.
He was ready to walk away if he destroyed Hendricks, he was ready to walk away on a loss, and as he showed in the presser, he was ready to walk away after winning a close one.

He said there was an announment after the fight way before he fought Hendricks and even his manager said he might retire, so no it wasnt a factor at all

GSP hasn't been the same fighter since he returned from knee injury to fight Condit. You could tell back then that his head wasn't completely in it and he was having reservations about being a pro fighter. Yes Hendricks gave him a tough fight but GSP was a shell of his former self. GSP a couple of years ago would have mopped the floor with him.

There were threads here about GSP making a possible retirement speech before he fought Hendricks.
